    Convertible air leaking around window

    I have a convertible that at the back longest point of the drivers window leaks air and you can see a little gap.The weatherstriping is in great shape but looks to be a little futher in than the other side.How is the strip attached and can you move it without tearing it?

    You can't move it. Is the door in alignment? After time it could have sagged slightly. The window also has some adjustments. Do you close your door by the window?

    Thanks bigron,
    No I do not close by the window.
    The doors close perfect.I was looking yesterday when I had the top down and behind the rubber is an aluminum rail that holds the rubber in place.It was bent in slightly towards the inside compared to the passanger side.I bent it a little but was scared it would break.This did help some and I am going to try to bend it a little more.
    I had to replace a broken window stabilizer a couple of weeks ago.I think maybe the window slamming into that rubber maybe bent the rail.

    Thanks

    That could be it. Maybe the stabilizer is pushing the window out to far also.
